Do you find the ''regular'' Audi R8 just a bit too pedestrian? Looking for something with a little extra oomph and exclusivity? Audi unveiled the answer for you: The R8 Competition, a 570-hp tribute to Audi's R8 LMS race cars-and it's the fastest, most-powerful, and most-limited version of the four-ring supercar you can buy in the U.S. The R8 Competition packs a serious punch, with the 570-horse total representing a 20-hp boost from the V-10 Plus model. That power breathes through a sport exhaust with gloss-black tailpipes and hurtles the aluminum screamer to 60 in a claimed 3.2 seconds on its way to a 199-mph top speed. (Audi's acceleration estimate likely is a tenth or two slow; we achieved 3.2 to 60 from the V-10 Plus.) The Competition comes with carbon-ceramic brakes but is available only with the seven-speed paddle-shift S tronic transmission. All this specialness is limited to just 60 units for the U.S. market! With the R8 getting a little long in the tooth-the car received a light refresh for 2013 and was introduced way back in 2006-the Competition serves as a last hurrah before Audi gives the mid-engined machine a full redesign for 2016.
